Africa is an amazing continent for birdwatching. The mainland has recorded around 2,250 species, of which about 1,500 are found nowhere else. On top of this, Madagascar adds about another 100 endemic species, with a further 40 if you include the Indian Ocean islands.

There are so many great birding locations in Africa, from the Kruger National Park in South Africa to the Great Rift Valley in Kenya; from Bwindi Impenetrable Forest in Uganda to Mount Kupé, Cameroon and the Bale Mountain National Park in Ethiopia.

The African Bird Club is the leading organisation concerned with the conservation and study of Africa's birds. It has over 1,000 members in 61 countries. It publishes an illustrated Bulletin every six months which includes papers on bird identification, distribution and conservation. ABC supports projects around Africa.
